Today, in my rush to do my hair and get to work, I managed to trip over my dog, hit my eye on the counter, and sprain my ankle. I arrived at work with a black eye and a painful limp. My boss didn't care, and fired me for showing up late. FML

True, the boss may suck.

But a couple questions - is this the first time you were late? Or is this a common occurrence and the "last straw"...
And did you even call to explain you would be late and why?

Just sounds fishy he would up and fire a great employee for one late morning...

28-Those were my thoughts exactly. If OP was in such a rush, she had to know the boss wasn't going to tolerate tardiness for whatever reason, whether it was by her own actions or company policy.

Your boss is a douchecandle, OP and I hope you can find a new job quickly or get your old one back!

And that's when you bring up the"other guy" into the conversation.

Just don't let him catch on that the "other guy" was actually your dog who effortlessly got the shit beaten out of you.
